Breakfast is anything but boring when this Easy Breakfast Banana Split recipe makes an appearance! Cottage cheese naturally provides the healthy protein you need to power through the day.
Sometimes, you have to shake up the boring breakfast routine and try something a little bit fun, but still on the healthy side. This Easy Breakfast Banana Split recipe is the best of both worlds.
For the past two weeks, my kids have been talking about how much they want banana splits and it got me thinking about this recipe. I decided I would keep some of the fun banana split toppings but swap some of the others for healthier options. And give it to them for breakfast. Major mom points, there! Of course, you can totally make this healthy with just a few ingredient swaps.
I started with a base of bananas and cottage cheese ….. yes, cottage cheese! It is a great way to sneak in some protein-packed dairy! When it comes to dairy, I love Shamrock Farms products. Shamrock Farm cottage cheese provides 13g of protein along with being low in calories and fat. And since my kids are still growing, it also provides the bone-building calcium they need.
